This practical concept vehicle has been driven as a street-legal three-wheeler on the streets of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Dr . Andy Schoenberg, inventor and developer of the vehicle, is available for questions and demonstration. Contact Andy here.
This latest version of Ecotrike incorporates regenerative braking. This improvement was developed in collaboration with a student design team from the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Utah.
The cost of a commercialized (mass produced) version of the vehicle is targeted at under $8000. This small vehicle uses only 1/3 of a parking space. It is envisioned that a small home solar system will be sufficient to keep the vehicle’s batteries charged thus eliminating the need to burn fossil fuels leading to a healthy sustainable future.
